IS TFN READY FOR A MOBILE-FRIENDLY OVERHAUL?

  1. Yes, displays like crap on mobile!

  2. Nope, I like the 2005 appearance. We have a magnifying glass for it.

    I like to look at each forum one by one and I can’t figure out how to do that in the update. I only see “trending” and “participated” and “unread” threads. I’ll probably use it to get my PMs because that looks the same but reading the actual forums themselves is a mess.

    Was this the latest update from a week ago, 7.0.0? Because if so they've just moved things around- you can still get to the entire forum feed, you just have to press a few extra buttons now. Like, the JCF is under Groups, and then the forum list is under Forums.

    Ugh, why they keep trying to make it more inconvenient for use is beyond me...


    Missa ab iPhona mea est.

    I gave up on Tapatalk a long, long time ago; I've got no real issues posting via Safari when I'm on my iPhone... don't quite get why more people don't use their mobile browser instead of a terrible app.

    You have an iPhone. Any decision has been lovingly made by people who know better than you do what you want, and therefore it's actually what you want. This is best for you, trust them. And juicing beats cancer every time.

    (Why are you not on Android, do you just want your mobile telephony to be a subpar experience? Yours is the ancient Persia of phones, whereas an Android capable handset is the ancient and glorious Rome)

    I used tapatalk like once and forever since I have just used my phone and the internet. It's not that bad.

    Ok - I've been looking into the options and I feel hopeful we should be able to deliver a new mobile friendly design by years end.
    I am speaking for TheForce.net, not the boards to be clear.

    Tapatalk doesn't work all the time. I tried it a few years ago; at least then, it was crap.
